Blast From the Past

The people. . .have been led. . into a trap from which it will be haRd to escape with honor and dignity. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiques are belated, insincere, incomplete. Things have been far worse that we have been told, administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. It is a disgrace to our . . . record, and may soon be too inflamed for any ordinary cure. We are today not far from a disaster - TE Lawrence, Sunday Times, London, 1920
